For over 60 years Mr Leslie Flint worked as a Medium.
As his Mediumship developed, he began working as an Independent Direct Voice Medium.
This faculty allowed people from the Spirit World to communicate in a 'living voice' of their own
totally independent of Flint himself.
In 1945 researcher George Woods was introduced to Flint by the Reverend Charles Drayton Thomas
and it was the start of a friendship that would last almost 40 years.
In 1953 Woods took Mrs Betty Greene to meet Flint for the first time -
and between them, they decided to start recording these Spirit voice communications for the benefit of others.
Over the next 20 years Mr Woods and Mrs Greene worked with Flint to record over 500 tapes of Spirit voices,
creating a whole library of recordings.

George Woods recorded his first Flint séances on heavy 'wire' recorders, which used reels of fine wire to record sound.
These were soon replaced by 'reel to reel' tape recorders, which initially used reels of paper tape for recording.
This delicate paper tape was improved upon for general use, when reels of 'magnetic tape' became available.
By the early 1970s, as technology improved, more professional upright recorders were used, for clearer recordings.
After Mr Woods and Mrs Greene had both passed away - Flint continued with his work
and recordings were made on cassette tapes, until just before Flint's death in 1994.
The Leslie Flint Educational Trust have thousands of these recordings collected over almost 60 years.
They represent the greater portion of the lifetime's work of Leslie Flint.
Larry Taylor created the first website for the Leslie Flint Educational Trust in the mid-1990s
to share digitised versions of many of the original recordings.
The work continues with this current website, as many of those original recordings are enhanced and transcribed
and previously unpublished recordings are digitised and added to the archive.
